Dr. McMahon: At Edgewood Dental Care, new employees can expect a wonderful work environment. Everyone works together to get the main mission of our practice accomplished, which would be personalized and comfortable care for the entire family. You start at one level and move up to another level. Most of our people that have been with us for the longest are people that we’ve self-trained to become a dental assistant not a hygienist. They have cleared formal schooling. We’ve become expanded due to dental assistant by training in the office, placing fillings, doing coronal polishing, and things like that. So you start at the bottom and move with time. If someone has a great attitude, gets along well with people, smiles, we kind of train them to do almost anything.
Ashley: I feel we have a lot of good teamwork here. Everybody helps each other. If you get behind, we can pull other people in and we’re always very good at explaining things and telling patients that they’ll be no surprises. I just really enjoy being here and helping patients. So I very much enjoy talking to people and helping people and making a difference in their lives if you can. We take our time, we show them everything. Yes, we’re very good at making people feel comfortable.
Lydia: I’ve worked with Dr. McMahon for 11 years. I feel like everybody here is kind of like a family and everyone helps each other out. Makes the day go by easier when you like people you work with. I think everybody works together really well. And usually when someone new comes in, we all kind of help them get kind of situated and transitioned and learn before we throw him in there. I really like working with Dr. McMahon because he is very patient. When he’s teaching you something that you maybe don’t do often, I feel like he takes the time to explain it and tell you, you know, how to do it the right way. He’s kind of a perfectionist in a sense. I mean, he expects high-quality work. So then from his employees, you end up being a high-quality assistant because you want to meet his standard. I think that’s different here as versus other places. I have a lot of patients that I really like. When those patients come in, it’s nice to catch up with them and have that friendly relationship with our patients.
Debbie: Edgewood Dental Care is awesome. I’ve been here for 13 going on 14 years. We have a great team. Everyone works very well together. We all love each other and the doctors are great. I think what sets us apart from most practices is that we’re a team that works together and we like each other and we like working together. And we all like working here. If you’re new and you come in, you always eventually fall right into our team because we make you a part of it. We care about you and that’s what makes it different. I’ve worked in other offices. I’ve been in dentistry for 42 years, and this is a great place to work. The best part of my day is when I walk through that door and everyone says, ”Hi, Debbie, how are you?” And Dr. McMahon says, ”Debbie, how are you?” I’m like, ”I’m great, Dr. McMahon, how are you?” He’s like, ”I’m great, Debbie.” I mean, it’s just awesome. You know, best part of my day, the day I walk in here, I start my job. I work through the day with positive attitude and I leave here and I’m happy here. And that makes a big difference. If you’re happy, where you work, big difference.
